Well Im going to Penn State now and I am taking 4 classes this semester while working. So far my classes were fine. A mindless Music appreciation class. A statistics class. A finance class. Then there was a Biological Science class. I wasn't sure what to expect. It turns out its an "Environmental Science" class. Ok then. I've had this in high school. Should be easy. Learn about nature. Learn about animals and plants. Study get an easy A. Turns out this is an Environmental Nazi class. The "Doctor" started off with a tirade on Katrina and how it has destroyed our environment and how it has killed many thousands of people (of course the official death toll 1400 as of 8/2/06, when i answered that there were only about 1000 dead, she gave me a look like i was a retarded monkey for mentioning such a low number) and that they are still counting the bodies as we speak. Then she shot off into a tirade about how there are so many Tropical storms lately and that it wasnt like this 20 years ago. It took every ounce of my will not to respond on that first day. Sure i know i have facts that can prove her dumbass wrong but i don't want to piss off the "Doctor" on the very first day of class. This is her turf and she sets the rules. My viewpoint would NOT be accepted and i would mostly likely be on her shit list from there on out. So she hands out her list of acceptable topics to do for the research paper. Among them are gems such as "Is Nuclear Power good for humanity?", "How many species have gone extinct thanks to human kind?", "Is George Bush good for the environment?" My insides are aching to put this "Doctor" in her place but i know that nothing good will come of it. Most of the students will disagree with my view. The teacher will have it in for me before we ever opened the book and more then likely I'll never see this woman again after this semester. So I'm biting a hard bullet here. Its only been one day and i have 4 months to go. ITs going to be a long semester. Maybe after i have all A's on the tests and A's in the papers, I'll wager a "Debate" on her ideas. Anything else would simply be asking for an F.
